So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca

Thanksgiving is over, but good memories will linger.

Dave the chef, Lee, cook and hostess, Gay who cooks and helps me, Mary who made delightful desserts and Lyn who has always been so dear and so good to me, especially after Barry's death.
Both Lee and Lyn, my sister June's daughters, are in Real Estate. Dave is a young retiree and so is Mary. I enjoyed hugging them all on Thanksgiving. Missing in the photo are Lee and Dave's son, Will, and his girlfriend, Abbie. They were present, but not available for the photo.

Three I love: Lee, Gay and Lyn.  

Lee and Dave had a table loaded with so much food. Sadly, we tried to eat it all, but still had leftovers to take home. Tonight, I ate a turkey sandwich sent to me from the home of Stu's brother, Doug and his wife, Mary. Stu was in Chicago for Thanksgiving day to be with his brother. 

As usual, we told stories and laughed our heads off. With a pandemic still ongoing, and memories of 2020 hanging heavy over all of us, it was fabulous to be with loved ones, to hug them, and know they were doing all possible to be sure each of us was safe. 

Well, I think there is some banana pudding left in the fridge. I had better go see about that. Gay uses Mothers' recipe and it turns out beautiful to see and delicious to eat. 

If you are shopping for Christmas gifts, don't forget books. They make wonderful gifts.

October is chock full of writing events, that's for sure. We have two major events scheduled for Writers Circle and you don't want to miss either of them.
From Charlotte, NC, Maureen Ryan Griffin, poet, writer, teacher and owner/director of WordPlay ( See her website here) will stop by and give a three hour workshop on Saturday, October 29. If you haven't had the experience of taking Maureen's classes, don't miss this opportunity. The theme for the day? FOOD!! How much can you write on that subject? Anthologies have been published on just that theme.
If you are a beginning writer or an experienced writer you will learn and have fun in this class.
As you know we have limited space, so don't wait to register. Send a check  ($22.50) to Writers Circle, 581 Chatuge Lane, Hayesville, NC.28904

Also in October, Scott Owens, poet, editor, teacher and more, from Hickory NC, will spend the weekend with us. That is October 15 and 16.
He will read at Writers Night Out in Hiawassee, GA on Friday evening. But he will teach at Writers Circle on Saturday, October 15. His class is not only for poets, but for fiction and non-fiction writers as well.
Come to the Netwest Picnic on Sunday, October 16,  and hear him talk about his favorite subject writing and publishing.
